I am so proud of my Armenian heritage. I love the family values that we were raised with and so much of it I attribute to my father being raised in a strong and close Armenian family. The genocide is something I was taught about as a little girl and even studied in junior high school. Although I will never completely understand the horror and tragedy that went on, I pray for those who were affected. Today we will honor those who went through the tragedy and were killed in the 1915 Armenian Genocide.
